- Bahrain and Saudi Arabia signed contracts worth US$300 million for a new oil pipeline to replace one that no longer has enough capacity to meet Bahrain’s demand. The new pipeline will carry 350,000 barrels of crude per day between the countries, the Energy Minister of Bahrain said.
- Saudi Arabia has budgeted US$385 billion on roads, airports and energy projects over a five-year period with another US$30 billion worth of contracts under way or at the bidding stage for infrastructure projects,” said Corey Henry, senior logistics specialist for CB&I Oil & Gas. “An estimated US$6 billion a year will be invested to bolster the water sector over the next two decades and another US$70 billion by 2018 to add 22MW to the nation’s power-generating capacity.”
- Research by Timetric predicts Qatar, Saudi Arabia and U.A.E. as the countries fastest with the fastest rate of construction growth between 2016 and 2020.
- Qatar’s construction growth has been bolstered by public investment in infrastructure projects, anticipating events such as the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the National Vision 2030.
- Saudi Arabia’s efforts to diversify its economy includes investment in buildings and infrastructure, as strong fiscal position is expected to shield public investment plans from the potential threat posed by the recent drop in oil prices.
- The United Arab Emirates’ role as a leading center for tourism and business will mean that it is likely to continue to attract investment in the commercial buildings sector. Major infrastructure projects include expansion of the Dubai metro, an Abu Dhabi metro and light-rail network and preparations for EXPO 2020 in Dubai.
